Our support for business innovation - Innovate UK

Innovate UK exists to help companies in any part of the UK to grow through innovation. We are a key delivery body for the government’s Innovation Strategy.

We support business through a range of interventions, including helping them:

  • to find the right partners
  • to access the right expertise and equipment
  • with financial loans and grants
  • by connecting them with investors.

These interventions support the development of new approaches, across a range of technologies, in all sectors and industries. These include advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence, digital, electronics, bioscience and advanced computing.
